Samsung Hercules

Last updated: Jun 27th, 2011.

The Samsung Hercules is rumored to be a new super-superphone from T-Mobile. After rumors of the Galaxy S on the three biggest carriers in the United States left T-Mobile out, we were left wondering whether or not they'd be getting anything of the sort. While that picture has yet to be painted, rumors have since popped up that this will essentially be T-Mobile's Galaxy S II, albeit with quite a bit of difference.

Inside may be a dual-core Qualcomm processor (not Snapdragon) with an Adreno 220 GPU, 1GB of RAM, an NFC chip and more. The display will be Super AMOLED Plus and will clock in at 4.5 inches in size. Like the Galaxy S II, HDMI functionality will come through the device's USB port thanks to MHL technology.
